Had dinner at Taj yesterday with some friends. Expecting the worst since (a) it's trendy; (b) it just opened; (c) it seems to be more of a bar than a restaurant (see, e.g., Lotus, The Park); (d) the staff was a wee bit too good looking; and (e) there were 10 of us for dinner. To my shock, the service was fine and the food was delicious -- and fairly inexpensive. I had the shrimp and chutney app. and (on the recommendation of the waitress) the chicken breast entree. Both were extremely interesting, well presented and flavorful. Had a taste of a friend's beef tenderloin, which also was quite good.
Apps. were about $9-12 and entrees $16-20. All in all a very good meal at a reasonable price.
